Winter Storm Warning
Statement as of 10:24 AM EST on March 01, 2015

... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 3 PM this
afternoon to 7 am EST Monday...

* locations... central and southern Rhode Island as well as most
of southeast Massachusetts right to the South Coast and as far
east as the Cape Cod canal.

* Hazard types... wet snow.

* Accumulations... 4 to 8 inches of snow.

* Timing... areas of light snow will develop this afternoon. The
snow will increase in intensity this evening falling moderate
to heavy at times. The bulk of the accumulating snow will
occur between 4 PM and 1 am... when snowfall rates may be on
the order of 1 inch per hour. The snow will taper off to
flurries toward daybreak Monday.

* Impacts... untreated roads will become snow covered and
slippery by this evening along with poor visibility at times.
Given temperatures will be near freezing... the snow will be of
the wet variety especially near the South Coast. This may
exacerbate any on going roof problems.

* Uncertainty... the heaviest snow looks to occur close to the
South Coast. However... there is a low risk the snow could mix
with or change to a period of rain near the South Coast. If this
occurs... snow accumulations will be less than forecast.

* Winds... southwest 5 to 10 mph.

* Visibilities... one half mile or less at times.

* Temperatures... in the upper 20s and lower 30s.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning is issued when an average of 6 or more
inches of snow is expected in a 12 hour period... or for 8 or more
inches in a 24 hour period. Travel will be slow at best on well
treated surfaces... and quite difficult on any unplowed or
untreated surfaces.
